Once upon a time, not long ago and not far away...

For some reason, I seem to have found a lot of Canadian stuff in the picnic basket today.

Want to know a secret Canadian code word?

In any international crowd, just say the words, "Look up. Look waaaaay up," and all the Canadians in the room will start going all mushy and happy. (If you're Canadian of a certain age, you're probably smiling goofily already).

It's like one of those trigger things the CIA implants subconsciously in its sleeper agents. Like a Manchurian Candidate kind of thing, only nicer.
